Say goodbye to “manager,” “associate,” and “customer service specialist” and say hello to “ringleader,” “idea alchemist,” and “service sensei” — yep, fun and funny job titles are all the rage right now. If your company allows it, or if you’re in business for yourself, why not have a little fun with your position title? While you might want to stick to more traditional titles on your resume (recruiters often scan resumes for job title keywords — and “alchemist” or “ninja” isn’t likely to be what they’re looking for), try getting more creative with your business cards, email signature line, and LinkedIn profile. After all, business doesn’t have to be boring, and neither does your job title. Need some inspiration?
